The Public Domain review is an outstanding resource, collecting some of the most fascinating and entertaining pieces of art that have fallen out of copyright’s legal restrictions. This website is full of treasures. One of my personal favorites is this children’s book by Charles Bennett, where a cat exhausts his nine lives. It is charming […]
The Bogus Opus, a comic I began writing around April, feels like the first time that the animals and beasts who populate work can have voices. I like to create small worlds of meticulous detail and I fixate on the creatures in such detail that they develop personalities. These short stories are something like a […]
Genova-based digital artist and illustrator Rubens Cantuni really likes his colors. For his colorful Happily Melting Portraits series, he paid tribute to pop culture icons by ripping their famous mugs right across the face.

Will Bryant is super nice guy. That’s what I have heard anyway. His work is playful, and funny, and super laidback. Usually pigeonholed as a illustrator or graphic designer, this is a man of many talents. Recently completing his MFA in Studio Practice over at Portland State, his new work consists of building colourful sculptures […]
I have a huge crush on Nicole Lavelle. Huge. Not only is she more talented and inventive than me, she is also extremely adorable. Her calligraphic works evoke the deep romantic in me and make me want to escape to small town America to eat apple pie whilst the Pretenders play on an old jukebox. […]
All gloom and despair: that’s what Franz Kafka is known for with his novels and short stories, and the 20th century literary icon can hardly be said to have written any children’s tales in his life. Brooklyn-based writer and video game designer Matthue Roth therefore took it upon himself to adapt Kakfa for children with […]
Patrick Kyle is best known for his unconventional narrative work, creating worlds that are somewhere between a delirious hallucination and a sweet dream. The zines he produces, in particular, are a delight. Seemingly working non-stop, he is always trying his hand at something new or experimenting in some way.
Brussels-based artist ADN decided to take celebrities and characters from popular television shows and reinterpret them as if they were in The Simpsons. It’s a simple but funny idea, and the characters are completely recognizable in their Simpsonized state.
DR.ME is a multi-disciplinary art and design studio based in Manchester and consisting of Ryan Doyle (DR) and Mark Edwards (ME). The work the duo have produced over the past couple of years is wonderful and hypnotizing, always managing to do the unexpected. Taking their projects in directions simply ‘good’ designers fear to tread, not only is […]
A while back, a friend of mine introduced me to the amazing work of Parisian graffiti god, Horfe (sometimes spelt Horfee). His work really is something different in the realms of both graffiti and fine art. It’s striking how much effort he puts into each piece: from quick throw ups to more elaborate work, everything is always a pleasure to look at.
Australian born, New York-based artist Karan Singh operates under the alias Wake Up Mr. Singh and has released a plethora of new illustrations in addition to re-branding and relaunching his website.
At first glance, the work of Dutch artist Ramon Bruin appears to be a variety of three dimensional sculptures. But further inspection reveals the works to actually be sublimely executed anamorphic graphite drawings. Marvelous!
